About me


The Name of the Piece

The name of the piece is a piece with no name. For publicity reasons we had to give it a name, and that’s how we decided to name it „the name of the piece.” But the truth is: this piece has no name. Maybe we will name the piece during the performance. Maybe not.
Two performers, a writer, and a musician improvise onstage in the abyss that separates words and things, looking for ways to queer language and emancipate bodies from the names and concepts that were given to them. They engage in an ongoing process of building practices to question an anthropocentric approach to language. Theirs is a performance of deconstruction, an  exercise in seeing language not as a way to appropriate things (I name, it’s mine) or to prove some human superiority, but as an eternal dialog between ungraspable beings. Within this dialog, worlds/words can be created.
